Born in Nice (Alpes-Maritimes) - died in Paris. Upon leaving the École Estienne he worked in the workshops of Ch. Meunier and Quesnel. He joined Petrus Ruban's studio in 1903 and succeeded him in 1910. He stopped working as a bookbinder in 1956. He married August 20, 1903 Georgine Charlotte Santin at the town hall of the 5th district. He also practiced wood engraving, painting and music. He was an officer of the Academy in 1913 and a Knight of the Legion of Honor in 1936. He was a member of the Historical Society of the 6th arrondissement of Paris from 1932-1938. Pierre Felix LOÜYS (1870-1925) was a French poet and writer, most renowned for lesbian and classical themes in some of his writings. He is known as a writer who sought to "express pagan sensuality with stylistic perfection". He was made first a Chevalier and then an Officer of the Légion d'honneur for his contributions to French literature. He was born in Ghent, Belgium, but relocated to France where he spent the rest of his life. He studied at the École Alsacienne in Paris, and there he developed a good friendship with a future Nobel Prize winner and champion of homosexual rights, André Gide. From 1890 onwards, he began spelling his name as "Louÿs", and pronouncing the final S, as a way of expressing his fondness for classical Greek culture (the letter Y is known in French as i grec or "Greek I". During the 1890s, he became a friend of the noted Irish homosexual dramatist Oscar Wilde, and was the dedicatee of Wilde's Salomé in its original (French) edition. Louÿs thereby was able to socialize with homosexuals. Louÿs started writing his first erotic texts at the age of eighteen, at which time he developed an interest in the Parnassian and Symbolist schools of writing. During 1896, Louÿs published his first novel, Aphrodite - Mœurs Antiques (Aphrodite - Ancient Manners), a description of courtesan life in Alexandria. It is considered a mixture of both literary excess and refinement, and, numbering at 350,000 copies, was the best selling work by any living French author in his time. Antoine CALBET (1860-1944) a student of Alexandre Cabanel, and was highly regarded as painter and illustrator of nudes and genre scenes. His subject matter and treatment of the human figure reflect an eighteenth century, Rococo influence, often including naturalistic, pastoral scenes depicted in a manner exuding lightness, elegance, and decorative charm. Beginning in 1880, Calbet exhibited regularly at the Salon des Artistes Français, eventually becoming a member, and earning medals in 1891, 1892, 1893, and 1900. Calbet provided numerous illustrations, notably: Aphrodite by P. Louys, Madame Neigeon by E. Zola, and Le Jardub de Berenice by M. Barres.

        Cours d'Economie Politique professé à l'Université de Lausanne (2 Tomes - Complet) [ Edition originale ]

      F. Rouge, Lausanne, Pichon, Duncker & Humblot 1896 - 1 vol. in-8 reliure demi-basane bordeaux, F. Rouge, Lausanne, Pichon, Paris, Duncker & Humblot, Leipzig, 1896 (tome I), VIII-416 pp. et 2 ff. manuscrits, F. Rouge, Lausanne, 1897, (Tome II), 2 ff. (titre et errata), 426 pp. Le tome I est incomplet des 7 derniers feuillets, le texte ayant été complété par deux feuillets manuscrits copiés par le professeur Georges-Henri Bousquet, disciple et ami de Pareto (mais les tables des matières manquantes n'ont pas été copiées). Etat très satisfaisant par ailleurs (reliure lég. frottée, annotations de G. H. Bousquet, très nombreuses en garde, plus rares dans le texte). Prix en l'état pour cet exemplaire incomplet mais de belle provenance. Importante édition originale du Cours d'Economie Politique, provenant de la bibliothèque du professeur Bousquet, qui rééditera le cours avec G. Busino en 1964. Successeur de Léon Walras dans la chaire de Lausanne, le sociologue et économiste Vilfredo Pareto (1848-1923) reste l'un des plus fameux intellectuels de son temps. Dans son cours, il expose la distinction de l'utilité et de l'ophélimité, développe une théorie de la production reprise de Léon Walras mais approfondie, et une théorie économique du monopole. L'exposé d'économie appliquée qui occupe la plus grande partie de l'ouvrage embrasse la plupart des aspects de l'économie : population et main d'oeuvre, monnaie, épargne, banque, production, commerce. Son originalité tient essentiellement à sa théorie de la rente, son analyse des crises et des revenus. Le professeur Georges-Henri Bousquet (1900-1978), docteur en droit en 1923 avec une thèse sur "L'évolution sociale en Hollande 1914-1922", est un économiste de l'école de Pareto et Schumpeter, mais également islamisant de l'école de Goldziher et Snouck-Hugronje, professeur aux facultés d'Alger puis de Bordeaux. Peu après sa thèse, il participa à la mission de la SDN pour la restauration financière de l'Autriche. Proche de son maître en sociologie Vilfredo Pareto, il servit fortement sa pensée, l'édita et le vulgarisa ; il entretint une correspondance avec Pareto et le visita notamment une huitaine de jours dans sa villa de Céligny vers Pâques 1923. Grâce à la fondation Rockfeller, il fit un séjour de recherche à Harvard dans les années 1933-1934. Il avait connu personnellement Joseph Schumpeter, Irving Fisher et Pareto, ainsi que le disciple de Léon Walras Albert Aupetit. Le nom du Professeur Bousquet est l'un des rares économistes français contemporains à être plusieurs fois cité dans la monumentale Histoire de l’Analyse Economique de Schumpeter.

Preceding Dickens' final crime-based work 'The Mystery of Edwin Drood', this novel also features elements of intrigue and suspense; John Harmon, a wealthy young heir, is supposed drowned and in a case of mistaken identity his estate is passed to Boffin, a former servant of his father. John must infiltrate the Boffin household and gain their trust and friendship in order to regain his fortune. [Attributes: Hard Cover]

        THROUGH JUNGLE AND DESERT, Travels in Eastern Africa

      London and New York: Macmillan & Co., Ltd., 1896. First edition, the London issue, printed and bound from the American sheets with title-page imprint reversed. A note in the books states that this copy was bought directly from the author's grandson. Profusely illustrated throughout based on photographs taken from the author, and with one (of two) of the large folding maps that are so frequently missing from the pocket at the end. So many copies have less than the two maps called for that one suspects they weren't always inserted in every book. Thick 8vo, publishers original navy cloth, with gilt vignette of a lion's head on the upper cover, gilt lettering to the spine, t.e.g. xiv, 535 pp. An unusually nice copy, the cloth in fine shape with almost no wear and only a light touch of mellowing to the spine panel, still very handsome, the hinges a bit shaken but strong and holding firmly, the text block quite bright and well preserved, solid and sturdy, unobtrusive evidence of old damp to the lower gutter, beginning in the final third of the book and reaching the text only in the final quarter, in all cases very mild. RARE FIRST EDITION OF A PRIMARY AFRICAN WORK. The work includes a good deal of material on travel and exploration in Africa and is also a very important work on "big game hunting in Eastern Africa. [The] author hunted exhaustively and saw many new species, one of which was named for him. He traveled with Lt. Von Höhnel and had the same guide as Sir Samuel Baker. [Much of his] hunting was between the Tana and Juba rivers. The work is considered one of the finest reading books on African hunting and travelling." - Ellen Enzler. From a long line of eminent New York families, the author was a soldier, explorer, and politician who later served as U.S. Representative from New York. He was a friend of Teddy Roosevelt, who he thanks in the preface. He spent three years in Africa and became a fellow of the American Geographical Society, the Royal Geographical Society and the Imperial and Royal Geographical Society of Austria.

        Études d'économie sociale. (Théorie de la répartition de la richesse sociale.)

      Lausanne & Paris: F. Rouge, F. Pichon, 1896 - Octavo (208 x 140 mm). Contemporary blue half cloth, titles to spine gilt, dark blue boards. Early Italian library stamp to front pastedown; ownership signature to half-title in light pencil. Spine rubbed, faint stain to front board, contents slightly toned. A very good copy. 3 diagrams, one folding. First edition of one of Walras's major contributions to his economico-social doctrine, based on lectures which he held at the University of Lausanne during the years of 1870 through 1892. "As far as pure theory is concerned, Walras is in my opinion the greatest of all economists" (Schumpeter in: Blaug, Great economists before Keynes, p. 264). In this work, as well as in his Etudes d'Economie politique appliquée (1898), Walras's main interest in pure theory (which he had earlier presented in Eléments d'Economie politique pure, 1874-77), shifted to issues of applied economics and social economics which actually was a revival of the activity he began when he was young. Einaudi 5970; Masui 537; Mattioli 3800; The New Palgrave 3, p. 863; Sraffa 6248; Walker 194. [Attributes: First Edition]

        AN OUTCAST OF THE ISLANDS

      1896. London: T. Fisher Unwin, 1896. 1 page preliminary undated ads. Original dark green cloth. First Edition of Conrad's second book, preceded only by (and containing many of the same characters as) ALMAYER'S FOLLY. After Edward Garnett (then a reader at Unwin's) had "discovered" Conrad and helped him get his first book published, he worked very closely with Conrad on this one -- so much so that some biographers have suggested that Garnett's name should have appeared on the title page as co-author. OUTCAST is considered the middle volume of Conrad's only trilogy; the third volume, which he began right after OUTCAST but could not complete for almost a quarter of a century, was ultimately published in 1920 as THE RESCUE.~This is an unusually bright copy, essentially without wear, fine except for a couple of very faint front cover marks. The number of copies issued is not known, but in this condition this book has become rather scarce. Cagle A2a.1.
